Pros and Cons of Listing a Price When Selling a Domain

Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home1/theman37/public_html/ on line 103

When I am going to list a domain for sale or send an letter to an enduser I often debate myself if I should list a price. I have talked to many people about the idea and people appeared to be split, I think it does depend on the domain and your plans for the name and its future.

Pros to listing a price with your domain

Weeds out Lowballs
Can lead to quick sales
No negotiation
The buyer know what you are looking for
I have found that with lower price domain it is much better to list a price (Under $1,000)

Cons To Listing Domains With a Price

Discourages offers
You might sell for less than you could have
You are stuck at that one price
People get to make offer that they think is fair

Like I said above it really depends on the domain, with lowerpriced domains I have been sending my end user letters out with prices that I am looking to get. I think that works much better than just having them make an offer out of the blue.

Do you list your domains with prices?

    Like you said, it depends on the domain. How much traffic, how coveted is it? Also, is it a catchy generic name??? That can make it higher. Generally, I use auction format on sedo and set a reserve and let people bid. The person who thinks it is worth more to them will bid higher. So, with a reserve, it’s like I quoted a price that i want but don’t tell the end user. Wait till the bid gets that high then I get the best of both worlds and possibly a higher sale price.
